It took 21 seconds for Alabama to score, and it came on Tagovailoa's first pass of the game - throw to Irv Smith Jr. who ran it into the end zone for a 76 yard touchdown.
Earlier this week, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said he was "disappointed" with the lack of cheering from the school's student section. In addition to that, Alabama allowed Rakeen Boyd to top the 100-yard rushing mark and quarterback Trevor Storey finished with 230 yards and two touchdowns as he found a lot of success in the short passing game. No. 1 Alabama led the way followed by No. 2 Georgia, No. 12 LSU, No. 16 Florida, No. 20 Kentucky, No. 21 Auburn and No. 22 Texas A&M. For a former rival like Tebow, who ended a Crimson Tide national title dream in the SEC Championship Game 2008 and then failed to repeat the feat in 2009, that's a different story. You show up for the game and you support your team.
Tagovailoa fired four first-half touchdown passes, going 10-of-12 overall.
In case you haven't heard, Tua Tagovailoa is really good at football.
The replay booth also overturned the ruling on the field that Damien Harris had not broken the plane of the end zone on a fourth-down leap at the end of Alabama's first series of the second half.
"Offensively, this was our best performance", Arkansas coach Chad Morris said. Tagovailoa hit Jerry Jeudy for scoring strikes of 42 and 60 yards in the second quarter. "I thought we executed our game plan very well and I thought that (offensive coordinator Joe) Craddock and our offensive staff did a great job putting the plan together". Three of those passes went right to O'Grady, including an 8-yard catch in the end zone on third-and-goal, putting Arkansas on the board.
"I don't think that you really beat the other team when you give up 31 points, like we did today, at least on the defensive perspective", Saban said, via ESPN.
